"There needs to be guidelines and rules." Yeah and you signed their contract. HOA's aren't cool in my book. I wouldn't contract with one.

HOA are pure poison. Fees and fines for not having the same color house as everyone else? Can't have a small vegetable or herb garden? Only "approved" amount of holiday decorations? Can't park in your own damn driveway and have to park in the garage, because it makes the neighborhood look neater?
I'm sure they think they're keeping the neighborhood up to some kind of standard, but they mostly attract the ones who just want to be able to run their neighbors lives and lord it over them. "Gotta be nice to Mrs X, she's the HOA President and you don't want to upset her". When you start making the payments on my house, you can tell me what I can do with it. Till then...STFU and mind your own business.

Had no idea how corrupt until I lived in one.

The board members are Entrenched 'career' Bureaucrats, who can't be voted out because there is never a Quorum (enough participation) during elections.

They break the rules with impunity, at the same time denying the rest of the membership satisfaction for real issues.

Form parking permits to building permits, hand me down close meeting blanket policy that everyone else must adhere to except them.

There was a lawsuit over stupid s*** a resident filed and won, at the end of the proceedings the judge commented he never saw so corrupt an orginaization...

I don't believe there is such a thing as these 'HOAs' in the UK. However.. I think they serve as an interesting microcosm of the rest of the world, certainly of governments in general.

The issue I feel is always thus; in order to rise to a position of power you need to be the kind of person who wants to rise to a position of power, the motivation of which is always going to be (at it's most basic) the love of having power and influence over others. The kind of person who loves having power over others is, necessarily, not the type of person you want having power over others.

The kind of person who you would want to have power over others is someone who does not wish to have power and control over others. However, because they do not want it, they will not seek it and, therefore, will never be in a position of power.

This is ultimately the problem of any and all forms of government; the ideology, no matter how noble, will always be corrupted by the fundamental fact that whomever is in charge, wishes to be so.

HOA's are evil.

Never ever buy a home with a HOA.

Was that the one that was not allowed to put a flag "pole" in his yard?
But he could hang a flag on his house?

HOAs are because some people simply don't know how to be a considerate neighbor. Yes, there are some HOAs that can be over bearing but the reason they institute rules is so individuals don't mess up property values for everyone else.

Just because you like to work on hoopties in your yard does not mean your neighbors want to see junk cars all over the yard. I can also see why neighbors would not want some lady running a mini farm in her back yard.

In urban environs, you have to be far more considerate of your neighbors. However, if you want to move way out in the sticks and live on 10 acres or whatever, by all means you can do what you want. But in situations where your actions affect the neighbors, HOAs serve a purpose.

As much as I hate to say it, HOA's are a necessary evil. I do not like them, I think they're completely bat# insane with their rules/regulations, and how they can pretty much prevent you from ever turning your home into what you really want it to be.

With that said, though, I've personally known people who sought out homes not in HOA areas, and I've seen what can happen because of it. My wife's parents moved out of their home of 15+ years because a few families bought homes for their college kids, and, well, just imagine what happens when you let a bunch of rude college kids with no respect into your neighborhood. The father actually went up to my father-in-law and apologized to him from day one, so he even knew how bad his child would be. My wives parents weren't the only ones to move away from there.

I've never heard of HOAs in the uk But everywhere you go, from small villages to cities, they all have their little groups (unelected, with too much power) that dictate to the local authorities what they want and what they don't want and because these groups are usually set up and run by the local bigwigs the influence they have is extra-ordinary.
They usually go by the titles of "heritage committee" or "keep this town clean".
What gets my goat is all these people that move out of the cities into the country (because they've watched too much Downton Abbey) then rant and rave about the cow muck smell.

But sometimes the rules change without notice...or rules are arbitrarily enforced, or not enforced for "special" people. That's what this is about.

Then live in an area that doesn't have an HOA, and deal with the other side of that coin. Here's to hoping you'd be lucky enough to find like-minded neighbors.

HOAs have published declarations and by laws. They can't arbitrarily change the rules without board approval. The vast majority of HOAs function just fine. Every now and then, you have a unique situation that needs to be dealt with. Unfortunately, in those cases it is usually both the HOA and homeowner being both idiots.

exactly!
homeowners who are friends with the association board members can do whatever they want and there is nothing anyone can do to force the HOA to enforce the rules against their buddies. HOA are just good ole boy clubs filled with shallow easily corruptible people.

I'd also like to mention that if people stop buying property that is associated with HOA, the HOA will start to lose power.

I can't understand why anybody would live in a place with an HOA. If I did, I can pretty much guarantee you that I'd end up in prison for long time.

I figure if you're stupid enough to live in a place where there's an HOA, you made your bed. If people had enough sense to refuse to buy in any place where there's an HOA, things would change.
